NOW PLAYING: What Is the Longshore Act?

CLICK TO VIEW TRANSCRIPT

The Longshore Act is a federal act that applies to injured workers who are working near the water. Their job must be maritime in nature but they do not qualify for seaman status under the Jones Act. Typically if the Longshore Act will apply to harbor workers, it also applies to fixed platform workers in the Gulf of Mexico. The significant thing for longshore employees is to know that they do have third party rights against any third party who might be at fault for their injury. Our office regularly handles third party claims as well as serious longshore claims and we are very familiar with the rights that longshoremen have. If you were injured working on a platform or on a dock, you should call our office, so we can discuss the Longshore Act with you. It is important to know that you may have very significant rights against third parties beyond the Longshore Act.
